ideas for gifted high schooler?
My son is a freshman. He is in accelerated classes for all subjects and earning A+'s with little or no effort.
In Geometry he does his other homework in class. In biology his teacher told me that if he made the classwork more difficult for my son, the other kids wouldn't be able to keep up. I was so happy when he got to HS & could finally be in ability based classes, but it's still too easy for him. We made the decision in first grade not to accelerate him into higher grades because for social & emotional reasons we felt it important that he be with kids his age. When he reached Middle School we were happy we made that decision.
Sending him to private school is not financially feasible for us.
He will be able to take AP classes his jr. & sr. years, but until then...Any ideas? I'm interested to know what other parents with prodigeous children are doing or what their schools are doing for kids like this? I do plan to go in & talk to the school.
